As Britain prepares to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, this two-part documentary focuses on home movie footage of the Queen and the public celebrations of her reign recorded by members of the public. Featuring previously unseen archive footage, the films provide a fascinating snapshot of British life over the past six decades. This episode looks at royal visits and those who have been caught on film meeting Her Majesty. They include John and Frances Canning, who were stunned when the Queen called in on their wedding earlier this year at Manchester Town Hall. Mike Inglis from Hull recalls the moment the Queen and Prince Phillip visited his home for a cup of tea back in 1957, Shirley Shearsmith reveals the footage she shot when the Queen visited her street in Crawley in 1958 and Simon Billing remembers helping the Queen plant a tree when she visited his school in Solihull in 1962
